Director Sion Sono on his film “Why Don’t You Play in Hell?” and the absurdities in the film industry

Japanese director Sion Sono wants to set the records straight: It was Bruce Lee and not Quentin Tarantino who transformed the yellow jumpsuit into a piece of film iconography.

Sono has been fielding questions all day about Tarantino’s influence on his film “Why Don’t You Play in Hell?” which premiered to an enthusiastic reception out of the main competition at the Venice Film Festival on Thursday.

The raucous gangster drama telling the story of a young filmmaker aiming at cinematic greatness is full of over-the-top graphic violence, and a would-be action star wears a yellow jumpsuit, as sported by Uma Thurman in Tarantino’s “Kill Bill.”

“I speak as head of the `Bruce Lee Fan Club,'” Sono said in an interview. “Everyone is talking about the yellow tracksuit as something from Tarantino, but that is very sad for me. The original idea was Bruce Lee’s, and now everyone thinks it came from Tarantino.”
